Over on my OK gardening board they are listing plants that smell and look like choc.
Haven't given them much thought but may have to try one or two. Problem is if they really smell like choc. I'll want to eat them!!! LOL
Love Choc!!!
Anyone here have choc flowers in their garden?

I have chocolate mint.
To me, it only tastes marginally much like chocolate. Mostly just mint.

I have seen pictures of them. They are pretty, but I prefer colors.

I know you guys have heard of "Chocolate Cosmos". The flowers themselves are a dusty red color, but smell like chocolate.

No chocolate plants/flowers of any kind here. But if I did, I'd be like SB and want to eat them. I'm a chocoholic! Big Grin

I've read about them, but don't have any. I want to get some. I'll have to check around. Smile
